Regis Philbin passed away. WHile I knew of him before that, he entered pop culture history by hosting Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and coining the phrase, 'Is that your final answer?', among others.

THE COMMITMENTS (for which he won his second BAFTA Best Director, as well as BAFTA Best Picture)
EVITA (for which he won a Golden Globe for Best Picture)
